The Right Wing Poison – Written Wednesday 13th January 2021 (Aged 45)

The Right Wing Poison

you have been asked –
to think about –
someone else –
not yourself –
so you reach for your flag
and the guns on the shelf
you have been asked –
to consider if –
all things are equal
so you claim you are the victim
and demand a white sequel
the deep dark truth –
smashes windows –
and climbs onto a roof
it carries cable ties –
and that symbolic noose
it is fed by lies
and covered in deadly flies
you have been asked –
if society is at its very best –
as people lay dead
and you find yourself under arrest
wondering on the delusions in your head
and how easily you have been led
the lies have become deadly weapons
and they have become easily led

James Garratt
